Abstract

Cystoid macular edema represents a "final common pathway" response of the retina to a variety of insults. It has been reported in association with vascular problems, inflammatory conditions, inherited diseases, tractional problems, intraocular surgery and medications. We report a case of cystoid macular edema associated with acitretin in a 65-year-old woman and document its resolution with optical coherence tomography (OCT).
